Annual Event Lets Crypto Shoppers Save When Paying with BitPay
BitPay, the world’s largest provider of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency payment services, today announced its annual Black Friday event offering deals for Black Friday shoppers who prefer to pay in crypto from BitPay merchants. To support this growing base of consumers who want to pay with crypto, BitPay has been working with its merchant partners to extend special offers for crypto purchases for the BitPay Black Friday shopping season. Some deals are available immediately while others start Thanksgiving week leading up to Black Friday.
“We are seeing so many consumers wanting to live life on crypto and this holiday season again presented us with a great opportunity to support consumers who want to make purchases and merchants who accept crypto payments,” said Stephen Pair, CEO at BitPay, said, “As the price of Bitcoin continues to climb along with Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Litecoin and Doge, crypto enthusiasts are looking for a way to cash-in and spend their earnings on holiday gifts and BitPay merchants want to attract new buyers this holiday buying season.”
BitPay offers multiple options to pay with crypto this holiday season including the BitPay Wallet App, The BitPay Card, Gift Cards and the BitPay Chrome extension. BitPay currently accepts 12 cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC), XRP [excluding the United States], and 5 USD-pegged stable coins (BUSD, DAI, GUSD, USDC and USDP). The total market cap of these coins exceeds $1.6 trillion, accounting for nearly 70% of the global crypto market cap.
BitPay merchants realize the benefits to accepting crypto and want to leverage this high-value shopping holiday to attract new customers and boost sales. Below is a snapshot of these special offers.
